        void newBeat​(Beat beat,
                     TrackPositionUpdate update)

        Invoked when a beat is reported by a player for which we have a BeatGrid. The raw beat update is available in beat, and calculated beat number of the beat which is just beginning (as well as the playback position within the track that this represents) can be found in position.

        To reduce latency, beat announcements are delivered to listeners directly on the thread that is receiving them them from the network, so if you want to interact with user interface objects in this method, you need to use javax.swing.SwingUtilities.invokeLater(Runnable) to do so on the Event Dispatch Thread. Even if you are not interacting with user interface objects, any code in this method must finish quickly, or it will add latency for other listeners, and beat announcements will back up. If you want to perform lengthy processing of any sort, do so on another thread.

        beat - the message which announced the start of the new beat
        update - the latest information about the current track position and playback state and speed
